Those Amazing Aloes

I’m always on the look out for a beautiful, tough, structural “living sculpture” for the garden and I think Aloe have it all.  This Aloe spans out from it’s thick base and over the years adds arm by arm of reaching fans.  It’s coral blooms last forever and it’s super slow growing nature make it an excellent container succulent.  It’s really nice that there are no spines to worry about – so planting near a walkway or by a pool is no problem.  Imagine this Aloe lit in a way to show it’s silhouette against a wall.  To see more Aloes than you ever thought existed visit the Los Angeles Arboretum.  The LA Arboretum has over 1/4 of the worlds species of Aloes.  Aloes are tough and beautiful.  Look how great this Aloe functions as both a lovely front yard focal point and a prickly security barrier near the window and house.  Aloes in bloom are a sight to behold 🙂
